Should our riders be told the economic truth ?

Got to feel for the people working for a living on weekends they have just taken a pay cut.
Does this mean that there will be more people looking to become an Uber partner to supplement their income?
Minimum wage is approximately $17 an hour with super and work over added on.
Should our riders who ask ,"What's the money like driving Uber " , be told the economic truth?

Now that we can pay ourselves less on weekends we should pass the savings back to the Pax and promote the fantastic uber product?

Uber and other ride share platforms need to focus on the old adage, "Quality is remembered long after price is forgotten "
A business partnership will only be successful if the two partners are mutually valued.
A giant corporation is unlikely to ever respect individual partners while there is the myth amongst riders that the system is financially good for everyone.
Raise the riders price to just under that of the competing taxis and reduce the commission paid to the rideshare company.
In return the partners should be restricted to a limited number of logged on hours per day as are truckers and pilots.

To my mind, it's sufficient to specify the gross figure but it needs to be made clear that the figure is before payment of commission.

Yes I guess you are right our costs are based on our own decisions.
1/ Do we operate a near new car
2/ Is the car a larger 5 seater or small hatch
3/ Do we sit in one place save fuel and wait for the pings.
The reality is that when asked "do you make much outta Uber "
the answer must be based on our financial expectations.
